Building on success
The report of a 'think tank' event jointly organised by the
Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), the JLA and INVOLVE, with the support of the UK Clinical Research
Collaboration. It brought together representatives from large and small research funding organisations, research commissioners and other groups and individuals with experience of patient and public
involvement in research priority setting and commissioning. The purpose of the meeting was to reflect on progress and to consider the future development of patient and public involvement in research priority setting and commissioning processes.
This "Chatham House rules" meeting, supported by National Voices, drew together 30
invited delegates to debate the
above question. The guiding principle for the meeting was: "notwithstanding the tensions that can exist
between the two sectors, there is massive potential for mutual benefit if charities
and/or patient groups and industry work together." The event thus asked how listening
to and working with patients can become a vital part of the business model for the pharmaceutical industry in developing new treatments and therapies.
